Below Average

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "This lightweight, poor boy-rich girl romance seems aimed squarely at adolescent girls, except that baseball plays a pivotal role in the story and, as a group, adolescent girls are notoriously uninterested in baseball. In addition, the series of earnest bromides the film delivers — believe in yourself, stick by your friends, allow yourself to succeed — is enough to turn off any teenager worth his or her salt.''

Newsday  Full Review
Below Average "A passed ball, a booted grounder, a balk with bases loaded....There aren't enough metaphors of lousy baseball play to adequately describe this lackluster summer romance about a rich girl (Jessica Biel) who falls for a working- class big-league prospect (Freddie Prinze Jr.)."

USA TODAY  Full Review
Below Average "Summer Catch is as predictable as the Yankees making it into the playoffs. Think Major League: Back to the Minors meets American Pie 2. And Catch isn't even a sequel. This formulaic baseball movie is long on clichéd plotting and short on exciting ball playing. In between are a variety of timeworn, testosterone-fueled high jinks.''

The Hollywood Reporter   Full Review
Below Average "In baseball slang, a "can of corn" is a high, lazy fly ball to the outfield. The baseball movie "Summer Catch" is the cinematic equivalent of that can of corn -- a movie going nowhere and filled with far too much corn in an era when teens flock to "American Pie 2."

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

DON'T BELIEVE THE CRITICS!! SEE "SUMMER CATCH!" Nearly every moviegoer enjoyed "Summer Catch." Most of the ladies gave it reviews of "Excellent" and "Fantastic." The guys rated it nearly as high as the ladies, so guys, THIS IS NOT A CHICK FLICK!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
This summer couldn't be more crucial for Ryan Dunne (Freddie Prinze Jr.), a blue-collar kid with major league aspirations. Every year the hottest college ball players in the country descent upon Cape Cod to pursue their big-league dreams during the day and blow off steam in town at night. The first local boy in years to earn a slot in the Cape's elite Baseball League, Ryan's finally got his shot...but the temptation to score off the field is almost as intense as the pressure to win on the diamond.

His eyes on the prize, Ryan tries to stay focused despite distractions like the local girls, who are all too ready to help the players cut loose. Among them are Dede (Brittany Murphy), who impresses the team with her ability to pour a beer without using her hands, and the town's very own "Mrs. Robinsons," who is infamous for her annual "initiation" of new recruits like naive young second-baseman Mickey "Domo" Dominguez (Wilmer Valderrama).

As the friction builds between his loyal townie friends and his cocky teammates - college superstars jockeying for the attention of pro scouts - Ryan's rivalry with hot-shot teammate Eric Van Leemer (Corey Pearson) nears the boiling point. His only ally is the team's fun-loving catcher, Billy Brubaker (Matthew Lillard), who's got Ryan's back - both on the filed and on the town.

The last thing Ryan's looking for is a fling with sexy, sophisticaed Vassar grad Tenley Parrish (Jessica Biel). Will he rise to the challenge or strike out? Either way, it's gonna be one hot summer...
